Living in a city as large and hectic as London does have a dramatic effect on our health, whether we are aware of it or not. ACUWORKS practitioners are highly experienced in a wide range of acupuncture treatments to support your health and to balance your system.

Unfortunately, the advertising standards association (ASA) has limited the communication of information regarding acupuncture treatments. For more information regarding this ruling, please take time to look at the following link: http://www.acupunctureworks.co.uk/resources/for-patients/147-asarestrictions .

Because acupuncture treats each person as an individual, it is considered hard to be able to prove through western medical science, the effectiveness of a treatment. However, acupuncture has been used as a mainstream treatment in China for thousands of years and is used by millions of people to help them with the following conditions:-

Stress related illness e.g. anxiety, insomnia, depression, panic attacks, poor concentration, poor memory & general fatigue.

Headaches including migraines, premenstrual & stress related headaches and those caused by blocked sinuses and allergies.

Gynaecological problems including irregular, heavy or painful menstruation, endometriosis, polycystic ovaries, ovarian cysts, PMT and menopausal symptoms.

Pregnancy & Post-natal complications including infertility, miscarriage, morning sickness, fatigue, breech pregnancy, post-natal depression, breast-feeding difficulties and post-partum fatigue.

Gastrointestinal including IBS, constipation, diarrhoea, stomach ulcers, indigestion, reflux, hiatus hernia, bloating, abdominal pain & weight loss.

Musculoskeletal pain and immobility including arthritis, stiff shoulders/neck, repetitive strain injuries, lower back pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder, rheumatism, sports injuries & sprains.

Respiratory problems including asthma, bronchitis, chronic cough, susceptibility to colds, hayfever, rhinitis & sinusitis.

Circulatory problems such as cold extremities, numbness, pins and needles and tingling sensations and low or high blood pressure.

As previously mentioned is is difficult to prove 'scientifically' the effectiveness of acupuncture. However, there have been some promising studies into the use of acupuncture for certain conditions, if you would like to find out more then please speak directly to one of our practitioners.

We always recommend that you speak to your doctor about any of your health concerns.
